MitchMash: Diener saw Brandon Jennings show coming
by Mitch Stephens
I was hyperventilating over Brandon Jennings, of course, and his third-quarter cremation of an entire NBA franchise.
Brandon Jennings averaged more than 38 ppg at Oak Hill Academy.He made 12 consecutive shots and scored 29 points from every spot on the court — driving right-hand spin shots (he’s left-handed), pull-up jumpers from the foul-line, an assortment of 3-point bombs — fadeaways, catch-and-shoots and pull-ups.
The 6-foot-1 rookie point guard for the Bucks did much of the same in the fourth quarter and, despite going scoreless in the first, finished with 55 points, three off the rookie record held by the most dominant player in league history, Wilt Chamberlain. Yes, that Wilt who once averaged 50.4 points per game.
Congratulations to 2008 OHA graduate Brandon Jennings!

In his first career NBA game, Brandon Jennings of the Milwaukee Bucks scored 17 points, grabbed nine rebounds and handed out nine assists. He was within a couple plays of joining Hall of Famer Oscar Robertson as the only player to ever record a triple-double in t heir NBA debut.
Brandon Jennings nearly became the first player since Oscar Robertson to have a triple-double in his first NBA game.The next night, in leading the Bucks to victory, Jennings led the team in scoring with 24 points.
Prior to last weekend, Jennings had been known as the trailblazing young player who boldly decided to skip college to spend a year in an Italian pro league developing for the NBA.
Now he owns one of the best starts to an NBA career … ever.
The Hard Way
Diminutive point guard Jennings has taken a long and winding road to the NBA.

After signing his rookie National Basketball Association contract worth nearly $4.5 million with the Milwaukee Bucks, Brandon Jennings could have walked into any dealership showroom in the city and driven away in something that said he’d arrived.
Check out highlights from 2008-09.
Milwaukee Journal-Sentinal Report: At the ripe young age of 19, guard Brandon Jennings has already been around the block a few times. Has he ever. The trail-blazing Jennings toured Europe playing professional basketball last season, eventually found his way to the Madison Square Garden stage Thursday for the National Basketball Association’s college draft, and now has Milwaukee, and possibly Green Bay, written in as the next stops on his itinerary. Jennings, a 6-foot-1 guard from Compton, Calif., and a former national high school player of the year, was selected by the Milwaukee Bucks with the 10th overall pick in the draft and immediately becomes one of the major building blocks on which coach Scott Skiles and general manager John Hammond hope to construct a team that will win in the NBA on a consistent basis.
